The FrSky Archer GR8, a great choice for big gliders.

This powerful 8 channel receiver features a hard plastic outer case and is shaped to fit in nearly all high performance sailplanes. It wouldn't be a glider receiver without a high precision variometer, built right into the receiver for hunting down those elusive thermals. Fine tune the settings in your FrSky radio to get audio tones to help track the lift and sink.

Want redundancy? Couple it with an SBUS capable receiver via the SBUS IN port and the receiver will automatically switch over to the second receiver should the GR8 have any issues getting a clean connection.

The radio will need to be running the most recent IXJT v2.1.x firmware to use Archer receivers!


  • ACCESS protocol with Over The Air (OTA)
  • Upgraded variometer sensor
  • Receiver redundancy
  • 8 high-precision PWM channels
  • SBUS IN & OUT (using standard servo connectors)
  • S.Port / F.Port and AIN2 (on 4 pin socket)
  • AIN2 port works with FBVS (basic voltage sensor for monitoring motor batteries)
  • VFR (Valid Frame Rate) telemetry

It was easy to bind. However, haven't flown with it yet


Good service Thank's

I receive my order with no troubles, Thank's


Great Receiver

Works very well I've had no problems flying gliders with these. I like the additional telemetry available, makes it easy to keep track of performance.


Replacement GR8 receiver

Had an earlier access GR8 that did not have the antenna boots at some time one of the antennas came loose and appears to have shorted out the telemetry output the receiver portion still works but don't trust. For my other older GR8's I made hot glue boots for the antennas. Glad to see the new ones with rubber antenna boots.


Great RX

Great RX, loaded with features for glider pilots and the price can't be beat
